This Time It's A Square

I know, last time I said life could be described with pyramids. This time it's with a square. Not a bunch of squares either, just one. This one didn't take too much effort to make either. Less mental stress that way.

Everything we do in life can be put into these boxes. Some things make us better people and some make us worse off.
Here's a few examples.
Positive physical stress: working out to the point that the body bounces back in a way that it's stronger than it was before. You gain better circulation and feel better in general.
Negative physical stress: Falling off a ladder and breaking a bone or running so much that you over exert a joint causing long term pain.
Positive mental stress: Reading a good book, learning something new about the world or a new way to eat healthy.
Negative mental stress: Fear of being unable to make ends meet, being belittled by people who matter to you, crystal meth (okay, that's a negative physical stress too).

In some way, everything you do in your day-to-day life fits into that square. Many tasks that we do are repetitive (just ask my feet if they know how to go in circles) and have what seems like little to no affect on us, but they do. Just writing this blog keeps me fresh in my writing skills and hopefully creative thinking skills as well. It also reminds me that I should not start doing crystal meth, fall off a ladder or rip on friends.
Alright, I've said my piece. Hopefully you can use this in your day-to-day.

So what you are saying is that I need to move up on the y axis instead of down like I usually do.
